TAPS Fish House & Brewery Restaurant Review: This expansive brewery boasts artsy, eclectic décor with a slight Cajun flair to go along with a good location, as its sprawling structure provides a southern anchor to the lively bustle of downtown Brea. It pours several of its own beers, such as the Cream Ale and the hearty Russian Imperial Stout. Beer lovers can't get enough of the brewery's special barrel-aged brews, as well as seasonal selections like the popular Oktoberfest and pumpkin ale. Chef Manny Gonzalez matches the brewery's panache with his Midwestern Angus steaks, Cajun specialties and fresh seafood dishes, for which he uses local ingredients. The Sunday jazz brunch is a real treat (and a value), when the raw bar and several tables in the bar area are loaded with a variety of delicacies. Guests pile their plates with cracked crab claws, fresh oysters, spicy peeled shrimp and imported cheeses, while prepared entrées range from jambalaya to biscuits and gravy, and chefs at various stations make waffles, omelets and pastas to order. Waiters keep the Champagne flutes --- or, for real beer fanatics, pint glasses --- full.
